Intrapreneurship Program

Start: spring 2024

A twelve-month course for professionals with a minimum of 3 years’ work experience in which you learn the vital start-up tools, skills and mindset via training, field trips and out-of-the-box assignments. Then, in a small team, you apply these in your own start-up project. You get to present this start-up during our annual HeroFestival, with the winner receiving a cheque for €7,500! And after that year? You are an innovator delivering genuine change within the organisation, offering a fresh approach. By persuading the right people with your own sustainable vision. 

En na dit jaar? Ben jij een innovator die met een verfrissende aanpak voor echte verandering binnen de organisatie zorgt. Door de juiste mensen te overtuigen met jouw eigen duurzame toekomstbeeld.
